Golden Ships of Dreams

On the strange river of my mind

float golden vessels, unguarded,

sailing to places uncharted,

they glimmer, shimmer,

carrying words and dreams that brighten

then grow dimmer,

as waiting to dock

in an unknown land

filled with wondrous creatures

and glowing sand,

I wake and try to understand.
